What It’s About
The research
apprenticeship program
(RAP) provides freshmen
and sophomore students a
paid research opportunity
to work with faculty
members pursuing their
own research. As a
research assistant you will
be exposed to the tools,
data, and types of research
methods that are used in
everyday classrooms or
businesses.

during the upcoming
academic year.
2. Work four to five hours a

3. Basic training in research
methods and ethics
through online support
modules
4. Participate in the campus
undergraduate research

“In the RAP workshop I
gained knowledge about
essential tools like End Note
Web and doing literature
searches.”
“Participating in RAP helped
me realize that research is
not just about being in a
lab.”
“It is awesome that this is a
paid position. Spending
time outside of class to work
on a research mentor’s
project was valuable.”
“I had a good experience
because I got into research
early on. I wish that more
freshman/sophomore
advisors would push their
advisees to do research.”
